The recently launched MMAE16 has quickly changed the way end users approach projects. All Electric means Direct Electric Drive, Electric Linear Actuator Steer, Electric Actuator Lift with Electric Release Holding Brake. What does all this mean? It means the ultimate in energy efficiency and it means no Hydraulic Oil, there is ZERO possibility of leaks. This has become one of the highest priorities for Mission Critical environments.


“The need for more sustainable solutions in the mission critical space is very dire,” said Sarah Harding, publisher, Mission Critical. “That’s why we’re proud to recognize the industry’s most cutting-edge products — innovations that will make it possible for us to reduce our carbon footprints safely, efficiently, and reliably at scale in a small space.” MEC is proud to be among the best with our newest product.


At an indoor working height of 22 feet and 18 feet outdoors, the award-winning MMAE16 is perfect for data centers, hospitality, food, and pharmaceutical applications. Along with being lightweight at 2,170 lbs. and low ground pressure, the machine is ideal for standard elevators and utilization across a wide range of floor types. At 78” tall and with no folding rails, it is easy to get thru standard door frames. The new mast comes with a standard glide out deck extension of 20 inches to make difficult areas to reach, easy and convenient.


“MEC stays true to our mission of A Better Solution in everything we do, and this is a strong confirmation for delivering an All-Electric machine and eliminating the potential of hydraulic leaks,” states Gary Crook, VP of Engineering.


The MMAE16 will have a significant impact on the market’s drive for lower emissions and eco-friendly solutions. Along with being all-electric, the new mast will deliver a better cost of ownership for rental companies and increased productivity for their customers.
